Virtual Class--Grilling & Chilling with Spices

Grilling & Chilling with Spices

with Curio founder Claire Cheney
Wednesday July 29, 2020, 5:00 – 6:00 PM
Live via Zoom $40

In need of fresh ideas for your summer menus? Ready to learn simple ways to dramatically improve flavor? This class with Curio Spice Co. founder Claire Cheney is your ticket to inspiration!

Claire will virtually introduce you to the ways that spices can be used to marinate, grill and season foods (and drinks!) for your summer menu, helping expand your palate and celebrate summer – even this socially distanced one! She will demonstrate how certain spice blends can make grilled fish a weeknight option (as opposed to a complicated affair), how to create your own Caribbean inspired spice rub for veggies or meat, and finally two ways to make spiced-infused summer drinks (with or without booze).   

After the class, Curio will follow-up with recipes and a special discount on your next purchase from Curio’s online shop.

Curio Spice Co. is a woman-owned, mission-driven spice business in Cambridge, MA. Founded by Claire Cheney in 2015, the company offers rare and direct-sourced spices — and a collection of unique, house-made spice blends. Quality, creativity, and the company’s dedication to community and customer service has earned it local and national notice. Curio Spice achieved B-Corporation Certification in 2019.

Newton Neighbors Helping Newton Neighbors Care Packages

Newton Neighbors Helping Newton Neighbors



Forced inside by the Coronavirus pandemic, members of the Newton community are still finding ways to reach out to their neighbors and friends to share messages of hope. Children put teddy bears in windows and we see rainbows popping up across the city and sidewalk chalk messages encouraging people to stay strong and stay inside. There are more ways you can help! Donate a care package to a Newton resident in need!


While Newton has a reputation for being an affluent suburb, statistics show that 1 out of 8 households in our city survive on less than $25,000 in annual income and 11% of Newton schoolchildren live in poverty. Newton Neighbors Helping Newton Neighbors, a Facebook group that was formed to connect community members to support one another and share resources during the Coronavirus pandemic, is sponsoring an effort to provide entertainment care packages to residents living in Newton public housing. In particular, seniors who have been self-isolating and young children (ages 5 and under) who need to be entertained and are not currently served by the Newton Public Schools. These groups have the least access to ways to keep engaged during this difficult time.


NNHNN is partnering with the Newton Housing Authority to distribute these care packages to those in need. The Newton Housing Authority provides a high standard of affordable housing to Newton’s diverse population of more than 1300 residents.

In partnership with a number of local retailers who are creating these entertainment-oriented care packages, NNHNN is connecting members of the community who want to donate them to Newton residents who are the most vulnerable during this difficult time. We see this as an opportunity for you to help those in need while also supporting beloved local businesses in the hopes that it will enable them to stay afloat while closed to physical business.

Participating local businesses include:


Care packages for seniors include items such as adult activity books (coloring books, crossword puzzles, sudoku and trivia), embroidery and cross stitch kits as well as “cheer” items such as tea, honey and trinket dishes. Care packages for kids include items such as picture books, puzzles, games, art activities, educational toys and craft project kits.


Care packages are $50 and can be purchased online by clicking on the link to the local business website. Your purchase will be delivered directly into the hands of a Newton senior or child living in Newton Public Housing. Join us to support our community and send a message of hope to a Newton resident in need!

We have been carefully following the news and reporting on the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, we believe that it is most important to support efforts to help slow down the tide of this outbreak in whatever small ways possible.

We greatly value the health and safety of our wonderful customers and store team. For these reasons,as of Tuesday, March 17, we will be closing the store to in-person shopping and events.We will assess the situation on a week by week basis to determine when it makes sense to open again for in-person shopping.

During this time, our online store will remain openand we will be fulfilling orders in this way. For our local area customers, we plan to offer curbside pick-up for orders placed online. In addition, we plan to roll out free local area weekday delivery on a trial basis to the following communities: Newton, Watertown, Waltham, Belmont and Cambridge.

We are so grateful for and appreciative of your ongoing support. At this time, we believe that it is so important to focus on the health and safety of our communities. We ask that as the opportunities arise please support the small and local businesses in your community during this very challenging time. We are all in this together.

We are thinking of all of you and hoping you and your loved ones stay well and safe!
